A password protected note may cause OneNote for iPhone to crash when you try to open it using FaceID.


This issue is fixed in the latest update. To get the latest update, go to the App Store on your iPhone, choose Updates, and then tap on the Update button next to OneNote. If you had followed the workaround steps for this issue and removed the password from the password protection section, you'll be able to add the password back to this section after you've installed the update.
